Dairy, Egg & Nut free cookies

So my baby girl is severely allergic to dairy, egg and peanuts.  She started on no dairy at only a few months old and then was tried for egg and just recently the peanuts.  She has never liked ‘sweets’ but L O V E S her fruit and veggies.  So 2 days before Christmas eve me and Landon decide to make some chocolate chip cookies that are Mckenna safe, not only for her to try them but because I am trying to keep her away from these allergens as much as possible.  After a whole bag of Enjoy Life (egg, dairy, soy, nut etc free) chocolate chips our first batch we found online was a major fail!  So being a bit PO’d I called my MIL and asked her what I should do with the egg replacer (by PaneRiso foods) as it is just powder that you add water too.  She gave me this recipe which turned out AMAZING and tasted JUST LIKE REG COOKIES!  
BUT Mckenna took one teency weency tiny bite of one and never touched them again :( Santa enjoyed them tho! ;) 
1 Cup Choc chips (if you are using the enjoy life they are a lot smaller then reg choc chips so i suggest just under a cup) 
1/2 cup butter (we use becel vegan butter)
1.5 cup of flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda 
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
2 eggs (1tsp egg replacer mixed with 2tbls of water in seperate bowl before pouring into mixture) 
Add floud, sugar, baking soda and salt. Mix and then add egg replacer & chocolate chips.
In another bowl beat your butter and vanilla until fluffy (if you dont have a mixer like me a fork works just as awsome with a little power lol)
Preheat oven to 350, grease and flour your baking sheets and put cookies of desired size.  (MIL Tip: put a small pot of water in the oven with cookies to help keep them moist) <—— I thought this was a bit crazy but it really helped! 
DO NOT COOK MORE THEN 10 MINUTES!  Mine took around 7-10 but always took them out and turned them at 7 minutes.  Even if they aren’t completely cooked on the bottom if you are able to get them off the pan and onto a cooling rack without breaking them they will continue to cook a bit more as they sit.
